We have a surprise guest tonight! Chiquita will be sharing about healing humor and I'm sure we'll have a laugh or 10!

Licensed to ministry at the age of 17 and ordained later, she has served the Body of Christ in various capacities. With the graduation of her last child Chiquita recently launched her Full-time Ministry, God's Girl Ministries. God uses her in diverse areas of ministry including: Revivalist, Conference & Workshop Speaker, Comedienne, Play Writing/Actress, Singing and Songwriting, Author, Certified Christian Counseling and Mentoring. Having survived domestic violence among other life challenges, Chiquita ministers with a wisdom beyond her years as she brings humor and practical application to every presentation she gives. This Minister/Psalmist is a sold out vessel for God and will be the 1st to admit that God is not just her Father but her ALL and without HIM she can do nothing. http://www.godsgirlministries.com/ Did you know that laughter can lower blood pressure, boost your immune system, reduce inflammation, and release muscle tension? Arnold Glasgow calls laughter the “tranquilizer with no side effects.” Laughter therapy is appearing on the scene in many medical facilities as people recognize the healing properties attendant with a good belly laugh. Laughter has been called the “shock absorber that eases the blows of life.” Join us as we discuss the benefits of humor and joviality in trauma healing and have a good laugh or two along the way, this THURSDAY at 7:30 p.m. on Beyond Abuse Radio.
Medical issues can be a challenge in the best of circumstances. For abuse survivors, dealing with health problems can present special challenges. Triggers, low self esteem, fear of authority, body issues, and touch can all add to the mix when addressing medical problems and undergoing treatment.
Dealing with medical problems after abuse can stir all sorts of things. Fear of doctors and dentists are not uncommon. The question of how to put appropriate trust in medical personnel while taking responsibility for your own health is a skill that must be learned. Becoming aware of all your options and making wise treatment decisions are important. How and when to disclose an abuse history to your medical care team is another issue that must be considered.
Misa Leonessa shares her thoughts and experience in living with several chronic health issues, including a genetic bleeding disease, and the challenges she has faced through many doctor visits, medical procedures, and many surgeries. She has learned how and when to use western medicine (it has saved her life more than once), and when to find healthy alternatives. Her journey has taught her how to own her body and the ultimate decisions for what will be done to it, by whom, and when. Through taking responsibility for her own health, she has been able to use nutrition, exercise, and other interventions to greatly minimize the need for more tests and surgeries. Misa knows the struggle with health issues from a survivor’s perspective and is learning how to thrive in the midst of many challenges.
It’s no secret that play increases learning and creativity. We also know that play helps build healthy teamwork and intimacy. But did you know that we use play to learn how to give and receive, how to trust, how to be kind, and how to heal? Play can help people grow and develop a sense of self-esteem and can help us to recover from trauma and allow those parts of us that are arrested in development to grow into healthy adults. Play is called the greatest gift of childhood, and can continue to be a great gift to adults. Join Beyond Abuse Radio this Thursday as we explore the world of play and how it can help us become whole people.
Laughter adds joy to life and helps relieve stress. It strengthens relationships and helps defuse conflict. Through humor we can ease our anxieties and fears. In our last two shows we have talked about how laughter and humor can help us to heal. This week we will give you some specific ways to see the lighter side of life and to take yourself a little less seriously. Expect some good laughs and a whole bunch of ways to bring humor into challenging situations. Recharge and reduce your stress by tuning into this week’s episode of Beyond Abuse Radio!
Laughter is not as far from tears as you might expect. In order to laugh, we have to be connected to our feelings. Being able to cry means we are able to laugh as well. The more we allow ourselves to be emotionally present the more we can enjoy all the fullness of life. Laughter feels good and can bring us great release. This week on Beyond Abuse Radio we will talk about the healing experiences of laughter and imbibe in some of the greatest medicine known to man.
Embracing reality, seeking the truth, saying no to that which harms you and yes to that which brings life are all steps towards moving beyond surviving abuse and living a thriving life. Making the decisions to do new things opens up opportunities you never dreamed of. All of it takes courage- sometimes great courage. What does it look like to be a thiver? Living from the heart with honest, authentic relationships with self, God and others brings peace, joy, and the love you have always wanted. As you become who you were created to be, live from your new identity and take new risks, you are able to follow your passion as well as to become a help to others on the healing journey.
Art is an amazing tool to help us reach the deepest parts of ourselves. It speaks to us in ways that words cannot. Art can help us access our nonverbal language to bring personal growth, insight, and transformation. It enables us to connect with our feelings, thoughts, and perceptions. Through these images, we can come to understand who we are and enable us to express that self.
Join us as we welcome special guest, Michal Madison, watercolor artist and wounded healer, as she shares how art has become a friend along her healing path.
Joy can be an elusive thing. What is it exactly? Happiness? Pleasure? Some see joy as a goal in itself; others find joy on the way to living authentically. Can joy be given and received? Can it be lost, or found again? Our special guest, Shawn McCain says joy is risky. He would know because his live exudes joy. Learn how you can lay a hold of joy and how it can help you to heal from what ails you this Saturday on Beyond Abuse Radio.

Before we can make room for the good things that comprise a thriving life, we must say no to the things that keep us from walking in health and wholeness. Saying no to living in secrecy and silence out of shame over our abuse, no to keeping the status quo and allowing addictions and detrimental thought patterns to have free reign, no to being controlled by fear, self protection, control, and isolation. Guest Duane Katene will be sharing his journey of healing as chronicled in his book, Neon Signs. In this book the main character 'Damian King' is based on Duane’s life as a sexual abuse survivor. Through a series of journal entries, poetry and short stories, the reader discovers what sexual abuse is and what it feels like to have gone through sexual abuse. Duane Katene is 35 years old and happily married to his wife Jodie. He has three daughters - Armarna, 7, Grace, 5 and Arden 2. He was born in New Zealand and moved to the Gold Coast in the state of Queensland, Australia when he was 8. He has a Bachelor of Psychology and a Graduate Certificate in Arts/Media, and currently works as a Foster Care Case Worker. Duane’s ambition is to write full time and to increase awareness and understanding of sexual abuse.
Special Guest, Karinah Guzman, Heroic SurvivorKarinah sits in the court room facing her perpetrator uncle trying to answer the question she was just asked. “Why did you wait this long?” She hadn’t waited the 20 to 40 years that it would take most of us to have the strength and courage to take her abuser to court. She was only 20 when she took the stand to testify. And then she did something else. She participated in the documentary, Pursuit of Truth, talking publically about her experience. Now, she is going to talk to YOU, Beyond Abuse Radio audience about what she has done. Find out why Karinah’s sister says that “she showed me the meaning of what it is to be strong,” on the last episode of Justice for Survivors.
Join Beyond Abuse Radio as we speak with producer, Valerie Gibson, about the making of an important film, Pursuit of Truth, and the impact she hopes to have upon the US justice system for survivors of abuse. It is a “splendid movie,” both angering and inspiring, as it addresses a crime that is usually committed behind closed doors without witnesses. Child sexual abuse remains in the dark because children typically are unable to speak about what is happening to them, and the inability to come forward frequently continues into adulthood. Thus, despite its epidemic proportions in this country, CSA remains in the shadows. But winds of change are stirring, according to Valerie. There is a growing movement to change the justice system’s fundamental approach to survivors’ cases. Tune in to find out exactly how change is being sought, and slowly won, for abuse survivors.
